That’s lovely. Quite compact with contemporary design that would match many home theater setups. Personally, I'd prefer mine to have a flat top to serve as temporary shelf for movies cases, remotes and such. Anyways, impressive custom case design. I assumed you built the base and metal framing around the heatsink in addition to the wood framing. If so, that’s rather hardcore.
Thanks NeoGeo. The entire case is made primarily from wood. I use prototyping methods to simulate aluminum. The paint I use is an industrial variety that contains real aluminum. The first and most difficult step in making aluminum castings is to build a mold using wood. See photos below for the flat topped version.

That looks beautiful, i love the way you made the HS a feature it almost makes it look like a CD auto changer.
Is the frame around the HS that the wood shell sits on aluminum as well ?
Thank you! The goal was to integrate the heatsink into the overall design. Nothing that you see is structural except the base. The shell/shroud is all attached to or hanging from the heatsink.
